Minor things to know about it...
on January 18, 2018
Why 4 Stars? Ok, it's a separator and I imagine it works :)
1. No flow indication (found out through the seller - seems counterintuitive)
2. Not really what I was wanting (my deal, but the flow direction changes it...)
3. A little nervous about when the hose torques it around - time will tell.
Alrighty, this is NOT for the main connection! This guy is made for the individual tool - REPEAT, NOT FOR TANK, BUT FOR TOOL! The male side threads are cut a bit sharp, but that's ok - I just use five turns of PTFE tape, rather than three (They give that stuff away in every air-kit, so I have plenty)
As a result of it's placement on the tool (a paint cup in my case) it will be torqued and moved, and it makes the connection longer than I would like - but that's a preference thing (I could get another swivel I suppose) - this is why I am a little concerned about it's durability, air hose has a way of "pointing out" the weak connections in the line. Who knows? Might outlast my hose and HF connectors!
*NOTE TO SELLER!! I don't think it will go anywhere, but you could tell the manufacturer to spend a few hours with a diegrinder on their molds, just etch in a little arrow for flow direction, it's a pretty standard practice with this sort of thing, and would increase the presentation of the tool :)
--I doubt they'll care, but it would be rather professional if they did.
Seller seems fine, and the thing is popular on Amazon, so who cares what I think!
